Article by jekky Geek Speak (CGS) is a comics audio podcast that focuses on current mainstream and small-press comic books, featuring creator interviews, reviews, commentary on the comic book craft and industry, comic-related movie discussions and more. Bryan Deemer and Peter Rios began the Comic Geek Speak podcast in 2005 and the roster of hosts has expanded to include Jamie D., Shane Kelly, Adam "Murd" Murdough, and Brian "Pants" Christman. The hosts express their individual opinions in an informal way that many fans think resembles a discussion between friends hanging out at home or at the local comic shop, giving the podcast a unique point of view.Comic Geek Speak has interviewed over 400 creators including Stan Lee, Terry Moore, Jamal Igle, Marv Wolfman, Gene Colan, Dave Sim, Geoff Johns, Matt Fraction, Joe Kubert, Freddie Williams II, Paul Pope, Jonathan Hickman, Denis Kitchen, Sean McKeever, and David Petersen, among many others. Other shows have included top 5 discussions, debates, interviews with retailers, and spotlights on specific characters or publishers. The CGS hosts also regularly visit comic conventions, giving day-to-day overviews of their experiences as attendees, interviewing creators as they promote their upcoming projects, talking to listeners, and even moderating or participating on panels.CGS's motto is "We Are Uniting the World's Mightest Heroes One Listener at a Time". The motto stems from a listener contest, won by Chris Whittington. The podcast engages in interactive communication with its listeners via email, voice mail, and its own forum. Listeners can ask questions, suggest ideas for future episodes, participate in contests and are occasionally given the chance to guest-hosts a show that touches on a specific topic of interest.Contents1 Episodes1.1 Book of the Month1.2 Indie Publisher Spotlight1.3 Let's Talk Shop1.4 Off The Rack1.5 Notable Discussions2 Segments2.1 Stump the Rios2.2 Top 52.3 Smarty Pants3 Spin Off Podcasts3.1 Footnotes3.2 World of Toys3.3 Exploring Bede3.4 Murd's Time Bubble3.5 Jamie's Essentials3.6 The Tower4 Easter Eggs5 Convention Tour6 Super Show7 Notes8 References9 External links// EpisodesThe CGS crew release episodes Monday through Friday.
